Hospitals across Wyoming have been seeing surging case numbers due to the pandemic. Memorial Hospital of Sweetwater County recently closed its doors to all hospital visitors due to an increase in COVID hospitalizations and opened up a new area to treat COVID patients.

Meanwhile, Laramie County School District#1 trustees Wednesday evening imposed a mask mandate for students and staff, effective today. The same board just prior to the start of the school year had decided to recommend, but not mandate the use of Face masks.
